Rafael MUÑOZ ESPÍ

Senior Researcher at ICMUV/University of Valencia, Frankfurt am Main

Posgrado en Alemania, 2002

Rafael Muñoz-Espí studied chemistry at the University of València, completing his degree in 2001. From 2002 to 2006 he worked in the group of Professor Gerhard Wegner at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) in Mainz. He received his doctoral degree in 2006 from the Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz for a thesis analyzing the effects of functional latex nanoparticles on the growth and physical properties of zinc oxide. In 2007, he moved to the USA as a postdoctoral associate in the group of Prof. Benjamin Chu at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, where he stayed for two years. During this time, he was mainly involved on the polymer-assisted formation and structural characterization of polyoxometalates and transition metal oxides. Since 2009, he has been a project leader at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in the department headed by Prof. Katharina Landfester. His research interests include mineralization processes, crystallization in colloidal systems, and the study of the interaction of polymers with inorganic matter.
